|My daughter was excited I was able to get Word to work on her laptop. She's going off to college in the fall and really needed it. Thanks again!|
Here's how to create shortcut:
Follow these steps to create a shortcut to start Word from the Windows desktop:
Right-click the Windows desktop, point to New on the shortcut menu that appears, and then click Shortcut.
In the Create Shortcut dialog box, click Browse.
In the Browse dialog box, change the Look in box to the following folder:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office
Note This location of this folder may be different on your system.
Click the Winword.exe file, and then click Open.
Click in the Command line box, and then position the insertion point at the end of the path that is listed. The path that is listed in the Command line box should look similar to the following:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Winword.exe"
After the closing quotation mark, type a space and then type the switch that you want. The path that is listed in the Command line box should now look similar to the following:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Winword.exe" /a
In the Create Shortcut dialog box, click Next.
In the Select a name for the shortcut box, type the name of your new shortcut, and then click Finish.
